In general, whenever a new version of the operating system is released, there are a few people who complain about the decrease in battery life and how quickly it drains. And iOS 15 does not break this pattern.

Even though everyone is pleased about Apple’s new iOS, some miners are having trouble with iOS 15 because of the depletion on their iPhone batteries that occurs after installing a software update. Those of you who have recently upgraded the software on your iOS device may be wondering,” why is my phone dying so quickly?” or even contemplating whether or not it is time to replace the battery in your iPhone.

You should read through this tutorial to understand how to extend the battery life of your iPhone running iOS 15 or an earlier version before you start looking for the best iPhone chargers and portable batteries.

After installing the most recent update, there are a few things you need to do in order to prevent the iPhone’s battery from draining more quickly.

Lower the brightness 

The screen on many iPhones is kept at its maximum brightness setting, which is one factor that leads to the device’s rapid battery consumption. You can rapidly adjust the brightness and contrast of your screen manually by doing the following,

  1. To begin, swipe your finger up from the bottom of the screen on your phone in order to open the Control Center option.
  2. After that, keep your finger on the brightness slider while you move it down as far as you can while still being able to view the display comfortably.

Enable ‘Low Power Mode’

Make your iPhone battery last longer and drain less quickly if you enable the Low Power Mode option. Follow these steps to make it happen.

  1. To begin, navigate to the configuration menu.
  2. As a second step, select the Battery option by tapping it.
  3. When you’re done with that, you can flip on the switch next to ‘Low Power Mode’.

Turn on ‘Airplane Mode’

If your iPhone’s battery suddenly drains too quickly, bad cellular coverage may be one of the primary causes. When you are in an area with a weak signal, your iPhone will increase the antenna’s power so that you may accept calls and keep a data connection. This quickly depletes your iPhone’s battery.

To prevent iPhone battery depletion, activate ‘Airplane mode’ by swiping up from the bottom of the Home screen to open Control Center and tapping on the Airplane mode symbol, or by navigating to Settings > Airplane Mode > Toggle ‘Airplane Mode’ to the on position. After returning to an area with a strong signal, follow the same procedures to disable airplane mode.

Please note, that when the Airplane mode is activated on your iPhone, you cannot make or receive phone calls.

Make Sure Your Battery is Healthy

There is another reason for the battery draining faster is because your iPhone battery is quite old and no longer functioning in optimal condition. So you have to check your battery health. To do so, follow this step:

  • Go to the setting
  • Scroll down and hit the Battery option
  • Tap on battery health

In this section, you can see the Maximum capacity option, which is a measurement of battery capacity. So if your battery capacity is less than 80 percent it may be worth seeking out a battery replacement to avoid fast draining and improve your battery life.

Turn on iPhone Auto-Brightness

Auto-Brightness settings help you to adjust your screen lighting automatically based on ambient light levels. To do so, follow these steps:

  • First of all, open the setting app.
  • Tap on the Accessibility option. 
  • Next, Tap on Display and Text Size
  • Finally, Toggle on Auto-Brightness to perform this function.

Background App Refresh 

‘Background App Refresh’ is the most common feature which drains your IOS battery life much faster. It refreshes your phone apps continuously in the background and updates them even when you’re not using them. To disable this feature:

  • Go to Settings
  • Then, in General, and Tap on Background App Refresh.
  • After that, turn off the entire function or disable particular apps you don’t need to refresh or update automatically.

Now that you know why your iPhone’s battery is going so quickly, consider the following suggestions from the article:

  • As many background applications as possible should be turned off;
  • Disable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi while not in use.
  • If you’re still having trouble seeing, lower your screen’s brightness to the lowest setting possible.
  • Avoid using apps that drain your battery, such as Facebook and turn on airplane mode.

To the best of my knowledge and from personal experience, if your iPhone battery suddenly starts draining quickly and you follow the solution provided above, you should be able to stop the drain and considerably extend the life of your iPhone battery under typical circumstances.
